G               D
Born the middle son of a farmer
      A                       D
And a small town Southern man
G                D
Like his daddy's daddy before him
           A
Brought up workin' on the land
G                   D
Fell in love with a small town woman
         A                           D
And they married up and settled down
G              D
Natural way of life if you're lucky
      A          G            D
For a small town Southern man
G                D
First there came four pretty daughters
         A                       D
For this small town Southern man
G                D
Then a few years later came another
  A
A boy, he wasn't planned
G            D
Seven people livin' all together
     A                              D
In a house built with his own hands
G                 D
Little words with love and understandin'
       A          G            D


       G                 D
And he bowed his head to Jesus
       G               D
And he stood for Uncle Sam
       G              D
And he only loved one woman
              A
He was always proud of what he had
            G              D
He said his greatest contribution
       G              D
Is the ones you leave behind
G             D
Raised on the ways and gentle kindness
     A          G            D
Of a small town Southern man

G       D
Callous hands told the story
         A                       D
For this small town Southern man
G                 D
He gave it all to keep it all together
    A
And keep his family on his land
G               D
Like his daddy, years wore out his body
        A                           D       
Made it hard just to walk and stand
G
You can break the back
        D
But you can't break the spirit
     A          G            D
Of a small town Southern man


       G                 D
And he bowed his head to Jesus
       G               D
And he stood for Uncle Sam
       G              D
And he only loved one woman
              A
He was always proud of what he had
            G              D
He said his greatest contribution
       G              D
Is the ones you leave behind
G             D
Raised on the ways and gentle kindness

Of a small town Southern man

G       D       
Finally death came callin'
         A                       D 
For this small town Southern man
G                           D
He said it's alright 'cause I see angels
         A
And they got me by the hand
G                  D
Don't you cry, and don't you worry
    A                        D
I'm blessed, and I know I am
G                D
'Cause God has a place in Heaven
      A          G            D
For a small town Southern man



       G                 D
And he bowed his head to Jesus
